I’ve always been passionate about Happiness and wellbeing, and after graduating with a degree in Psychology in 2011, I’ve gained various qualifications and worked with people facing many difficulties, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, substance misuse, sleep difficulties, anger problems, and more. Yet in my personal life, it was a whole different story.
I was the girl who did not know my worth. I played small in love, work & life. I accepted poor treatment, downplayed my skills and I seriously doubted my ability to change.
On the outside; I seemed perfectly fine – totally happy & nothing to complain about.
On the inside; I could not shake the thought “is this it?”. I felt stuck.
If I am being truly honest with you, I am inspired by my own journey to help you transform your own life.
Three years ago I began my own journey to building my self-worth and completely turning around my self-image. I refused to not feel enough anymore.
I had let my past dictate the way I view myself. My childhood taught me that people leave, come back, leave and come back – no consistency. I took that to mean I have to cling on tight to people. And boy, did I adopt some unhelpful coping strategies for that.
In my darkest moments, I thought nothing would every change. And then something happened – I took full responsibility for my happiness, my dreams and my relationships.
Simply put, I followed my Fire. I found the courage to say my dreams out loud, I found drive to take necessary action and I found the strength to get back up every time I fall.
Now here I am, inviting amazing women to my online Academy: Follow Your Fire – and absolutely delighted to witness them step into the very best versions of themselves.
Using a range of approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy; I have helped people overcome difficulties and make significant positive changes in their lives.
In particular, my practice focusses on the concept of self-love. Accepting myself has changed my whole world and given me a confidence I didn’t think possible.
I believe wholeheartedly, the key to your happiness and overcoming many problems is in treating yourself as your very own best friend. To treat yourself with the same respect and kindness you show others, you create a better mindset, enabling you to take risks, follow dreams and stop comparing yourself.
I know the transformation that this way of thinking can have.
My role is to help you solve and overcome your problems. I want to help you believe in yourself and start living the life you have been dreaming about. It is within you, it’s OK that you need guidance, we all do.
Since making the commitment to love myself more, I have taken steps and risks that I wouldn’t have dreamed of, from pursuing career goals, treating myself better, and only accepting healthy relationships, I am the happiest I’ve ever been. I still have bad days (everyone does), but with wellbeing at the heart of everything I do, I don’t judge myself for the bad stuff, I focus on the positives, constantly driving towards a happier, healthier life.
